The Tampa Bay Rays and Miami Marlins face off on Sunday in an interleague showdown at Marlins Park. On Saturday it was the Rays pitching that was the difference as they came away with an easy 4-0 victory. 

The Tampa Bay Rays have gotten some really good pitching each of the last two games and that has led to straight victories. Each of the last two games the Ray haven’t given up a run and in this game they need the pitching to be good again. On Saturday the difference maker offense was Joey Wendle who drove in two RBI’s. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Miami Marlins who had their strong play stopped by the Rays. The Marlins had won three games in a row before losing the first two games of this series. Even with their success this hasn’t been an elite offensive team, so when they are strong, it’s usually because the pitching is good. Jesus Aguilar has been the best offensive player this season fro the Marlins hitting four home runs and driving in 18 RBI’s.

Blake Snell will get the start for the Rays and coming into this game he sits with a 2-0 record and an ERA of 3.04. In Snell’s last four starts he has a 2-0 record and an ER of 2.41. 

On the mound for the Marlins will be Sandy Alcantara who comes into this game with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 1.35. 

The Rays are 10-1 in their last 11 road games. The over is 9-2-1 in the Rays last 12 games played on Sunday. The Marlins are 6-2 in their last eight interleague games. The Marlins are 2-6 in their last eight home games. The Marlins are 9-20 in their 29 games played on Sunday. The under is 17-5-2 in the last 24 meetings in Miami between the Marlins and Rays. 

These are two pitchers who have both looked good and runs are going to be a premium to come by. Look for both teams to struggle to score and this game is going to stay well under the posted total. In terms of the side it’s a lean to Marlins.
